Good value and pet-friendly downtown Toronto hotel with free breakfast and free Wi-Fi
Pros
  • Free amenities: Wi-Fi, breakfast, local calls, movie channels, newspapers
  • The staff were friendly and helpful, according to guests
  • Many guests thought that the room rates were reasonable
  • Several guests liked being near Chinatown and its restaurants
  • Many guests praised their rooms for being clean and spacious

  • Some housekeeping complaints from guests
Super 8 shines out very brightly in this regard. It's not the closest hotel to the hospital from the list below, but it is the most affordable on the list, as downtown hotels in major urban centres like Toronto can get pricey. To further help your pocketbook, this hotel supplies a compassionate rate for hospital goers (at a flat rate of $79 per night, plus tax) plus provides free breakfast and Wi-Fi, which is a rarity in downtown hotels. Parking is subsidized at about half the normal parkade rate from $19 to $10, although the hotel is not able to provide in-and-out privileges at this rate. (Pay at the front desk in order to obtain the hotel rate for the public parkade.) Their spacious rooms are well-equipped with comfortable beds, mini-fridges, microwaves and flat screen TVs. Super 8 is well located close to public transit, many shops and restaurants. It's 15 minutes to the hospital from this hotel by cab or 25 minutes by public transit.
